Jennifer Garner kicked butt as Elektra, and Ben Affleck played Daredevil before donning the Batsuit, so it’s no surprise their three children are super into superheroes.
“Oh, there is going to be Batman mania at our house next year,” Garner tells PEOPLE of Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, getting ready to watch their dad save Gotham. “But right now, it can go from Batman, to Iron Man, to Spider-Man, to any of them.”
“And just the general ninja,” she adds, laughing. “I have a ninja at my house right now.”
Garner, 43, is using her power as a public figure to help save lives outside of comic books, joining Neutrogena’s Choose Skin Health campaign.
“Skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers,” Garner says, “and meanwhile there are more cases of skin cancer diagnosed every year than breast, colon and lung cancers combined.”
She continues, “Everybody’s been touched by cancer. Luckily for me, it hasn’t hit my immediate family yet, but if you look at the statistics, it’s something that is going to touch all of us,” she continues. “It’s within our reach to find a cure, it’s within our reach to find better and more efficient treatments that do less to hurt the body. It’s all happening, but we have to make sure these brilliant doctors are supported and funded.”
